Submitting doctoral theses over the Christmas closedown

Looking to submit your Doctoral Thesis over the Holidays? Here’s some information that you might need to know regarding submission and examinations over this period.

The University is closed for the Christmas break from 19 December to 10 January inclusive. The last day for submission in 2020 is Wednesday 16 December 2020 and we will need to receive the doctoral thesis (and all the necessary documents) at the Wellington Faculty of Graduate Research, 10 Kelburn Parade, by 12:00 pm. These submissions can be made either in person or electronically.

Students who are currently registered to 31 December 2020, will have until 4.00 pm on Wednesday 13 January 2021 to submit without needing to re-register. Submissions after that time will require a further period of registration—no exceptions—and students will be liable for further fees.

Theses are processed in the order in which they are received and please be aware that delays in the examination process are likely over the summer as many examiners are not available during December and January.
